This month brings the famous young explorer to Blu-ray and DVD in two ways.
(Digression: I’ve been engaging in various icebreakers this week with remote work colleagues. When I mentioned I review comic books, an Indian-born coworker asked me if I knew Tintin. We in the US still don’t get just how famous the Herge works are internationally, I think.)
Following up their release of Season One late last year, Shout! Factory is bringing The Adventures of Tintin: Season Two to DVD on March 20. In 13 episodes (most of them two-parters) on two discs, the stories on this set include
- The Shooting Star
- The Broken Ear
- King Ottokar’s Sceptre
- Tintin in Tibet
- Tintin and the Picaros
- Land of Black Gold
- Flight 714
The set includes the English language track, the Spanish language track, and closed-captioning.
A week earlier, the big-budget theatrical release The Adventures of Tintin will be available from Paramount. Its use of CGI motion capture put some off, but fans will enjoy the movie-length featurette in 11 parts covering the making of the movie.
